Flynn is a double Aritaur Dominatrix grandson from Aritaur Nominator (F'Hiram x Dominatrix) to Aritaur Hastra Kastra (Tamerlan x Dominatrix). Flynn is very proudly owned by Chris & Tracy McMullen from Leek, Staffordshire.

Dominatrix is the only UK bred Dobermann to have gained the coveted Europa Jugend Siegerin title, and was Top Brood Bitch 2007 on the quality of her progeny. Her Grandson now brings the male title home.

Hastra Kastra 'Ella', is one of the famous H litter, a daughter of Dominatrix and Tamerlan. Ella is owned by Sally & Charles Hibbert in Derbyshire who bred the litter under our kennel name.

On Saturday 20th March, the UKDA (UK Dobermann Assoc') held the first ever UK ZTP (Fit for Breeding) test. Open to dogs who have achieved their BH (minimum), nine dogs were tested. Three dogs gained the highest possible grading of ZTP V1A of which one was our Aritaur Histabraq, another was Aritaur Vincent Vega, one of the youngest dogs tested.

The other was Adele - see below, now in pup to Flynn. Congratulations to all particpants for being bold enough to test your dogs, and to gain the respect of the co entrants. Thanks most of all to Dave & Heidi at Chancepixies for hosting the trial judged by Herr Wiblishauser from Germany, to the members of the Osnabruck Schutzhund Club and helper Normann for your invaluable help and generously given time.

Flynn had a great weekend in Ireland 09 where he swept the Junior board and won RBD at both the club show and RBOB at the Euro Winners show. Juniors can't be awarded CAC's or CACIB's, so Flynn had the Res Green Star, and generously allowed his uncle Histabraq to have the RCACIB from Working Class under Hans Wiblishauser.

   
                                   

We are delighted that Inguna Grase's superb Latvian bitch Amber Sea Adele Great, Jun.CAC, LV Jun CAC, 2x LV CAC, Est CAC, BOO, BH (Latvia), Naional Latvian' breeding test, had 7 superb puppies to 'Flynn' Aritaur Vincent Vega BH, Europa Jugend Sieger ZTP V1A on 9th Nov 2010.

This is the first ever mating in the UK of two ZTP (Fit for Breeding tested) dogs, both of whom achieved the highest grade possible of ZTP V1A at the first ZTP test held in the UK at the UKDA Club, 2010 Judged by Herr H. Wiblishauser. This litter will have a very strong proven working drives with a pedigree of highly qualified dogs behind both parents, and would not suit a sedentary lifestyle. If buyers are considering importing a Dobermann, this litter is effectively import Dobermann breeding in the UK, saving 6 months 'quarantine'. Puppies will be ready to go to their new homes at the beginning of January 2011. A very exciting litter.
